Antonio Russo unknowingly launched what would become the family business in the early 20th century when he began selling a few things from his farm to neighbors and at local markets. Fast-forward 70 years, and his great-grandson Tony Russo carries on the tradition of local sourcing at Russo’s.
The grocery store is run by the entire Russo family and works directly with local farmers and purveyors to get the best goods from nearby. That includes fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and cheeses, and even fresh flowers and houseplants. Currently, Russo’s requires customers to maintain at least six feet between themselves and other guests, wear masks, and also wear gloves when shopping. If you’re not comfortable coming into the store to shop, order online for pickup or delivery instead.
